My intention as a therapist is to create a compassionate, non-judgmental, and trusting space where you can arrive as your whole self and be heard, accepted, and supported. I work mainly with folks struggling with body image, eating disorders, anxiety, attachment trauma, perinatal mental health, and depression.
My therapeutic approach is integrative, combining here and now behavioural modalities with attachment, emotion, and nervous system-based models. My foundational style is client-centred, trauma-informed, and feminist-oriented—meaning that our work will be tailored to meet your needs, goals, and preferences while also acknowledging the external and systemic factors that have impacted your mental health and life experience.
Together, we’ll cultivate tools, skills, and practices to help you live a more meaningful life on a day-to-day basis, while also developing an understanding of the experiences and beliefs that impact your thoughts, feelings, and behaviours to support a shift towards greater wellbeing, growth, and regulation.
I’m a Registered Clinical Counsellor (#20485) with the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors. Prior to starting my private practice, I worked as a counsellor with the Looking Glass Foundation for Eating Disorders and supported survivors of sexual violence as a crisis line volunteer. I hold a Master of Counselling from City University, where I focused my thesis on feminist-oriented perinatal mental health care.
In my previous life, I spent nearly a decade working at the intersection of communications, marketing, and employee engagement with big, medium, and small Vancouver businesses, and completed a Master of Business Administration at Simon Fraser University.
If you’re interested in working with me, send me an email and I would be happy to set up a free consult call for us to connect.
